Porky Pig and Daffy Duck made a great combination in the 1940s. Daffy outsmarted Porky and, in the process, pulled off funny dialogue and tricks that came out of nowhere. He was both casual and vivacious (Bob Clampett stretched his emotions more than the other directors). Unfortunately, he became an egotistical patsy in the ‘50s but that’s another story.
Friz Freleng’s “Duck Soup to Nuts” (released in 1944) has a string of great routines that flow one into another. It also has an interesting animation effect. Porky rushes off camera to get a bucket to bail out the lake that Daffy’s in. Note the multiple pig eye.
Tedd Pierce wrote the story and the animation credit on the original prints of the cartoon went to Dick Bickenbach. Looks like Paul Julian painted the backgrounds.
